NORMAN — After four months of hard work, some of the University of Oklahoma’s top student talent will present recommendations for its entrepreneurial projects to key stakeholders from the university and the Oklahoma City metro area at 6 p.m. on Tuesday at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History.
Six intern teams from OU’s Center for the Creation of Economic Wealth will present their projects in areas such as technology commercialization, social entrepreneurship, product design and software development.
“The CCEW Final Presentations represent the culmination of projects that have the potential to impact the university and the economy through business creation,” said CCEW Executive Director Jeff Moore. “It will be an exciting evening that showcases Oklahoma’s talent and its growing entrepreneurial spirit.”
The event is open to the public, and audience members are encouraged to follow up with teams and ask questions during the reception immediately following the presentations. The presentations will feature the following projects and more:
· PARK AVE, a web and mobile application that connects buyers and sellers of private parking, making it more convenient to find parking at special events
· WASH Fund, an investment strategy for a $50 million fund dedicated to water, sanitation and hygiene projects throughout Africa
· Galfenol, an innovative material from Ames National Laboratory that acts as a durable and long-lasting vibrational energy harvester
· Pinying, a novel “interlanguage” developed by OU professor Jonathan Stalling that allows native Mandarin speakers to more intuitively learn English pronunciation
